Brenda Miller

Brenda keeps the entire office running smoothly and, as she has pointed out, has worked with Mike so long that she had braces when she was first hired in 1989.  Although some of our clients only visit our office once a year, Brenda is on a first-name basis with most of them, and her North Dakota geniality makes the front office a very welcoming place.  In addition to handling the front desk, she is an integral and versatile part of the accounting team assisting on projects, general problem-solving, and coordinating the schedules of staff and clients.

In hopes that she will not retire any time soon, the office recently began closing on Fridays at noon during the off-season to accommodate Brenda’s rigorous camping schedule where she enjoys the lovely state of Oregon with her family and friends.
